Personal Quote:

I know it's become an ongoing thing about whether videogames are art, and I think there's plenty of examples of things that use the form in a fascinating way. Things that are more surreal or artistic, like 'Katamari Damacy' or 'Vib-Ribbon.' See more »

Trivia:

He is known for asking for many takes during filming, and has been referred to by frequent collaborator Simon Pegg as a "perfectionist" (in a complimentary way). See more »

Trademark:

[Parody] Every film (and episode of Spaced (1999) (TV series)) is a parody of a certain genre or film (Shaun of the Dead (2004) parodies zombie horror, Hot Fuzz (2007) parodies police action-adventures, etc.). See more »
